    Comparison of Coronary Intimal Plaques by Optical Coherence Tomography in Arteries With versus Without Internal Running Vasa Vasorum

    It has been reported the internal running vasa vasorum was associated with plaque vulnerability, and microchannels in optical coherence tomography (OCT) are consistent pathologically with vasa vasorum. We investigated plaque vulnerability and incidence of slow flow during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of the internal longitudinal running vasa vasorum. Subjects were 71 lesions undergoing OCT before PCI. Internal running vasa vasorum was defined as intraplaque neovessels running from the adventitia to plaque. Lesions with internal running vasa vasorum were found in 47% (33/71). Compared to lesions without internal running vasa vasorum, lesions with internal running vasa vasorum showed significantly higher ...
